Every week, you receive a different assortment of 10-15 fresh organic vegetables. Our selection features seasonal open-field vegetables. We endeavor to include tomatoes and cucumbers throughout the year, and occasionally acquire certain fruits and vegetables from fellow organic farmers.
We offer two box sizes:
Small box – 95 NIS – 10-11 different types of vegetables. Suitable for one to two persons, or those who do little cooking.
Family box – 120 NIS – approximately 14-15 different types of vegetables. Suitable for a family of 4, or those who cook most of their meals at home.
Chubeza members receive a weekly newsletter bringing updates from the farm, stories, and tips about the produce. See our website for a description of list of the contents of this season’s boxes.

Yes…and no. Unlike other farms and companies, we do not offer a standard delivery service, but a subscription to a farm.
Every week you receive a wide variety of the absolute freshest seasonal vegetables, but not by individual personal order. Of course we want you to be happy and stay with us, so we grow a variety of vegetables and fill the boxes adequately. We try hard to balance the varieties of vegetables: cooking vegetables and those eaten raw, “hard” vegetables, leafy vegetables and herbs. Part of the fun comes in the surprises awaiting you in each week’s box, and the pleasure of preparing and eating veggies you probably would not have bought due to their being unfamiliar, hard to find, or exorbitantly priced.
To get an impression of what we grow, take a look at our harvest schedule.
And, see our Guide to Storing Vegetables to give you important tips on how to enjoy and keep fresh vegetables at their best.
At the end of the season, we’d love to hear your feedback to help us plan the crops we’ll plant for the next year.
You can add a note with requests regarding your vegetable selection.
Please use this format:
No (veggies A-B-C)
Instead would like: (veggies D-E-H)
We’ll comply as best we can, depending on the vegetables that are in season.
Large families, vegetarian families, or anyone who consumes hearty quantities of vegetables may opt to buy extra portions of certain vegetables. On the other hand, if you’re interested in committing to a CSA share but fear there may be more veggies than you can use in a week, you can subscribe for an every-other-week delivery, or share a box with neighbors or friends.
We grow mainly annuals, and have no trees or bushes. During the summer, we grow melons and watermelons and include them in the season’s boxes.
If you do want fruit, you may add a box of organic fruits, grown by other organic farmers and packed by us.
There are many more great products you can add to your vegetable boxes, from homegrown and lovingly-produced honey, oil, fruit leather and flours to bread, tahini and honey cookies. All are produced or grown by local, small manufacturers, and most are organic. More information about additional products, including fruits, and a look at the people who produce these tasty, quality products can be found here.
Yes. The farm is inspected and certified by “IQC,” an IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements) accredited certifier. Additional information about IQC and organic agriculture in Israel can be found on the Israel Bio-Organic Agriculture Association website.
We have Kashrut certification from Rabbi Naftali Shlomo, rabbi of the Gezer Regional Council. At his instruction, we plant to avoid Kilaim in the field, and Trumot U’Measrot are taken each week from our harvest.
We prefer credit card payments, but you can also pay by cash or checks.
We know that “community supported agriculture”; is not the usual way ofveggie shopping, but we recommend you give it a try.
There is no time commitment. Should you wish to discontinue your subscription, just inform us. If we do not receive a cancellation notice, we continue to send the boxes on a regular schedule.
